This was before your time here...
I was trying to get a CB450 Honda-Matic awhile ago, but the guy wouldn't budge on the price, which was about $1000 more than I wanted to pay (he wanted $1750... not even close to reasonable), so I passed on it.

You ever flattened out a wheel weight? You can get them pretty flat, and that might be enough to insert it between the rod journal and bearing on the big end of the rod, to keep it from rotating on the bearing surface at all... squeeze fit, once you tighten/torque the nuts.
